Indeed, I just found that the common-lisp-controller defines an around
method that maps all compiled files to the global cache in the Debian
distribution. I am not sure how one can use this directly from a
Debian distribution, but it should not be difficult to write your own
version, which you can place in the $HOME/.ecl file.

(require 'asdf)

(defvar asdf::*binaries-root* "/Users/jjgarcia/.asdf-binaries/")

(defmethod asdf:output-files :around ((op asdf:operation) (c asdf:component))
  "Method to rewrite output files to fasl-root"
  (flet ((remap-directory (pathname)
	   (let ((d (pathname-directory pathname)))
	      :directory (append (pathname-directory asdf::*binaries-root*)
				 (rest d))
	      :defaults pathname))))
    (mapcar #'remap-directory (call-next-method))))
